Jury recesses with no decision in trail of former treasurer Timothy Cahill
Jurors in the corruption trial of former state treasurer Timothy P. Cahill went home today without reaching a verdict and will return to Suffolk Superior Court for further deliberations on Friday. The jurors have been meeting since Tuesday afternoon, 17 hours in total. Cahill and his former campaign manager, Scott Campbell, have been charged with conspiring to use a $1.5 million publicly funded lottery ad blitz to boost Cahill’s run for governor in 2010. If convicted, both men face up to five years in prison.
